  • High Gasoline Prices

    How do high gas prices affect your department? How does it adjust, if at all?

    We write revenue tickets using our speed traps.
    Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

    My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

          Our Lieutenant told us the other night that we aren't being affected by the prices yet, but he said don't leave your unit running unnecessarily.

            Bulk gas from the station only, no gassing up at a regular gas station.

I have neither the time, nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it."

              Yup. Speed trap revenue = funding for vehicle gas.

                Speed trap revenue, generated by the enforcement of inappropriate speed limits.

                  I work for a budget strapped PD. Our Twp is very rural and it is asked to try and not go above x amount of miles when on patrol. On nights we go call to call, you can't help it and they understand. They just want it kept at a minimum.

                      Hmmmmm. I wonder if you could use the search function. There are pages of this question a few years ago when gas was almost 5 bucks a gallon, stud.

                        Back in the late 1970s when this happened we decreased the amount of patrol per shift we would perform. I recall we limited it to 50 miles per shift, but if we went over that amount they didn't say much.

                        It is a budget thing and budgets are made up a year in advance. $X for fuel. If you go over budget on fuel you move money from other areas and cut out the "fat" if there is any to cut. In some departments you park the cars and wait for a call.

                        Ticket revenue goes to the court and then into a general fund in most places. So ticket revenue is just as likely to pay for the mayor's secretary and it is for gas for a patrol car.

                          Memos about cars idling, a fee charged for take home cars, that's about it. You still gotta drive to get to runs.
